Precious treasure (Prov 21:19-21:21)

“It is better to live in a desert land

Than with a contentious and fretful wife.

Precious treasure remains in the house of the wise.

But the fool devours his treasure.

Whoever pursues righteousness

Will find life and honor.

Whoever pursues kindness

Will find life and honor.”

Once again we have the problem of the contentious and fretful wife. It is better to be on a desert island than with this contentious woman. Interesting enough, there is never any mention of cantankerous husbands. You can find precious treasure in the house of the wise ones. The fools, on the other hand, devour their treasure. If you pursue righteousness and kindness, you will have an honorable life.
